How much do you need to afford one of the best views in Fort Worth? A listing at the Omni Residences at 1301 Throckmorton St. shows it’s around $1.5 million.

This penthouse, located on the 32nd floor, has more than 3,000 square feet, with two bedrooms and three-and-a-half bathrooms. Of course there are floor-to-ceiling windows throughout — with blackout shades operated via remote control — plus an immense terrace for enjoying that view.

The kitchen boasts tons of cabinetry in a dark espresso stain to match the hardwood floors, as well as granite counters, commercial-grade Viking appliances in stainless steel, SubZero refrigerator, built-in wine cooler, and island to sit and sip your morning coffee.

A pendant fixture in the dining room ups the glam factor, and wide-open living room offers access to that phenomenal terrace. This unit is a great one for distinctive furnishings, because there really isn’t a whole lot of wall space for art. As Williams Trew listing agent Maggie Moore describes it, the sellers spared no expense in the finish-out of this property.

The master bedroom has a private balcony, separate sitting area and walk-in closets. The soaker tub in the master bathroom — a juxtaposition of more dark cabinetry and light-colored tilework — is flanked by generously sized his-and-hers vanities.

The building is located on the southern edge of downtown Fort Worth, yet still within walking distance of Sundance Square. Amenities include private lobby, rooftop pool, private club room, rooftop terrace and garden, fully equipped fitness center, valet, 24/7 security, and onsite concierge — but those will cost you $2,182 per month in HOA dues.
